      The relegation standings are based on “uninterrupted seasons” in Liga MX. Even though Lobos were able to remain in the first division because the winning Ascenso side wasn’t eligible for promotion, they were technically relegated. So from Liga MX’s point of view, this is their first season “back” in the first division after relegation, and so their previous results don’t count in the Tabla de Cociente.
